Apart from the established teaching and research, the Department extends the academic activity in the organisation of the International Congress on Physical Education and Sport as well as in the publication of scientific journal.
International Congress of Physical Education and Sport
The first International Congress on Physical Education and Sport was an idea that was born and elaborated within the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science and became reality in May 1993; an idea which has no precedent not only in Komotini, but also in the whole Greece. The zeal, responsibility, and tireless and synchronised efforts of all those who participated in this project has resulted in its continuance to this very day. 22 International Congresses on Physical Education and Sport have been organised since then, while the 23th Congress is now being organised for May 2015.
These annual academic meetings feature lectures by eminent foreign academics concerning issues of physical education and exercise, notices, round tables and training seminars with high delegate attendance levels in which participated many delegates.
It is a firm belief of the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science, that along with promoting academic research, the principles of fair play and the competitive spirit have to be advanced and to this end a plethora of sport events have been organised by the Department. These events – whether they be championships, sport meetings or just one day events – have been marked by their flawless organisation and high levels of volunteerism, while in cases of international participation they have also been a means of strengthening the bonds between athletes and the countries which they represented.
